SharePoint 2013 farm config wizard fails with the below error message when running on new server


Get-SPProduct : Failed to call GetTypes on assembly
Microsoft.AnalysisServices.SPAddin, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91. Could not load file or assembly
‘Microsoft.AnalysisServices.SPClient, Version=, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91′ or one of its dependencies. The system cannot
find the file specified.

Install spPowerPivot.msi

​This happens because PowerPivot is installed on the rest of the farm servers so when connecting the server to the farm, it tries to import this addin but it can’t be located.
